"BLST Review"

"Bright Lights and Shiny Things is a CD for the young and longing, making it perfect for a road trip with equally broken hearted and youthful buddies." - Performer Magazine

"BLST Reveiw #2"

"A mix of garage rock, Seattle in 1997, and a little je ne sais quois. It's a good buy for anyone looking for radio worthy music that isn't radio saturated." - Highlander News

After briefly laying dormant, Bench Grinder is ready to knock the doors down again in their collective hometown of Seattle and the world beyond. For the first time in their tumultuous career, Bench Grinder currently assembles as a quintet.

"Having more depth in our strings section and the addition of keys has really opened the doors for us as songwriters." Says frontman Chris Collier. "It's always been about the songs for us. We want to connect with as many people as possible and diversifying our sound has strengthened our arsenal."

Bench Grinder prepares to launch their proudest record to date with this summer's release of "Clean is the new Dirty". Revisiting great songwriters like Tom Petty, The Beatles and CCR, and drawing comparisons to Jimmy Eat World and Fountains of Wayne, Bench Grinder aims to entertain.
